* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: All of the signs and portents point to [[spoiler:Lilith}} being the key to either saving the world or ending it, though as the story progresses it becomes less clear if the powers that be are worried about an actual apocalypse ("the end of the world") so much as the destruction of the current status quo ("as we know it").

* ExactWords: Viviana assures Alissa and Ryn that she is not a member of the Shadowdancers...which is not true, but it is accurate, as she is more than just "a" member. [[spoiler: She's their leader.]]

* SheCleansUpNicely: Viviana is quite the GirlyGirl when not on a mission, it appears to be as much misdirection as inclination--Alissa and Ryn certainly never suspected the cute young woman with a yen for pretty dresses and sun hats was the BadAss leader of the notorious Shadowdancers.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: a DiscussedTrope InUniverse regarding Lillith; while all agree that she's a dangerous TykeBomb, whether she's an ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl (as Ryn suspects) or a MacGuffinGirl {King Savos calls her a "magical machine"} depends upon her degree of free will.

* XanatosGambit: Eldor appears to be running a centuries-long gambit intended to trigger TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. His primary tool Lillith may be running a gambit of her own if the way she scattered her friends to the places where they'd most likely function as [[SpannerInTheWorks Spanners in the works]] was her idea and not his. Finally, Gaia's chosen San de Vertis appears to be running her own gambit with King Savos to take over the world after "beating the evil out of Lillith". By the midpoint of "Monster" a GambitPileup seems inevitable.

* KickTheSonOfABitch: which makes it hard to bear when she viciously shuts him out under the baleful influence of an ancient spellbook.

* {{Magitek}}: There are cameras, robots, sophisticated security systems, etc, all of which run on magic, plus a lot of mundane items like lightbulbs, notepads and paper bags that modern people take for granted that a preindustrial society would not be able to manufacture.

* {{Narm}}: Viviana propositions Ilias with a very cheesy DoubleEntendre. It's not on the YMMV page because it's obviously intended to sound just as corny to Ilias as it does to the readership, making it an InUniverse example of Narm as well.
